Other than through the media I did not know much about the story of the Boko Haram kidnapping of over 250 girls in Chibook Nigeria I had hopes that this book would help with some of the details but was left wanting a LOT The author shares his own journey to Chibook which is informative the scary checkpoints the kids carrying weapons and wearing fatigues the bumpy truck rides He finds a few people to interview that were present the night of the kidnapping but doesn t go in to detail this is what a wanted Instead we get or less a I heard noise I looked the girls were gone clip He also finds a girl to interview but even that didn t provide anything other than i jumped off the truck and ran The author spends time talking about the politics that lead to the kidnapping which are certainly interesting and informative There is hardly any mention whatsoever of where the girls are now either speculatively or truthfully or what is being done to save them or what Boko Haram is up to these daysOverall this book left me with uestions than I had to begin withThanks NetGalley for the free copy to review

characters The Chibok Girls Download ✓ The Chibok Girls 100 review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Helon Habila On April 14 2014 276 girls from the Chibok Secondary School in northern Nigeria were kidnapped by Boko Haram the world's deadliest terrorist group Most were never heard from again Acclaimed Nigerian novelist Helon Habila who grew up in northern Nigeria returned to Chibok and gained intimate access to the families of the kidnapped to offer a devastating acc. Chibok is a poor and neglected town in Nigeria where much of the population work in agriculture and life was fairly uneventful in this obscure corner of the country until an event which brought it to the world s notice On the 14th April 2014 members of Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls Less than fifty managed to jump off the vehicles which they were loaded into Only one other girl has been rescued The rest tragically are still missingAuthor Helon Habila travelled to Chibok a town in lockdown since the events of 2014 While telling the story of the terrible events in Chibok he also explains the current political situation in Nigeria The checkpoints the roadblocks the schools burnt down in local villages he passes through the villages abandoned the ethnic and religious divisions intolerance and corruption are all shown without emotion and are the shocking for the journalistic style Boko Haram is the nickname for a group named Jama atu Ahlis Surina Lidda awati Wal Jihad or the people committed to the propaganda of the Prophet s teachings and Jihad which was founded by Mohammed Yusuf With such a long name they presumably needed a shortened version Boko Haram which means loosely translated Western education is abhorrent Indeed two months before the attack in Chibok Boko Haram terrorists invaded the Federal Government College killing fifty nine young boys It was a chilling rehearsal for Chibok Previously the terrorists had been robbing banks but as they were pushed back into the forest kidnapping became an easier way to make money as well as providing women to cook clean and to act as wives One of their main aims is to stop education especially that of girls Habila explains the history behind the events and he also shows the impact that they have caused Not only to the parents of the girls many of whom have suffered physically mentally and even died after the loss of their daughters but also to the community and families One of the most shocking parts of the book though comes when he interviews three of the girls themselves and they tell their story in such a straight forward way Even shocking though was and is the political inactivity after the girls were taken In fact one minister erupted when being interviewed on television so incensed was he about being uestioned about the missing girls It seems almost impossible that such a terrible thing as young girls being taken by force for no other reason than wanting an education has simply been ignored by the government of the country that is meant to protect themThis is an extremely important read It gives a good background to the political situation in Nigeria and explains without emotive language but in a very moving way the events in Chibok He also tells of those such as the Education Must Continue Initiative who are fighting against Boko Haram and who helped some of the girls who did escape that day The people Habila interviews are so remarkably stoic that I have to say I was astounded tearful and extremely angry at the end of this book A very moving read which I highly recommend I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for review
